Wow, this was really amazing! In fact, it still is. I caught these pics of tonight’s lunar eclipse right before the mighty fog rolled in right above my house. It was really magical, almost as if the fog and the earth were coordinating their obscuring efforts, leaving so much room for the imagination. Really, when it comes to the moon, less words are often more, so here are some pics to marvel at:
The last time a total lunar eclipse happened on a solstice was almost 500 years ago. I’ve also read on several forums that since tonight’s occurrence is more significant both astronomically and astrologically than 12/21/2012, that this really marks the end of the Mayan calendar. Whichever it is, I think we’re going through very transformational times, and my personal understanding of these larger, grander shifts of consciousness is that they ripen and happen over time, that we’re in a constant process of learning and evolving, that there really is no end and no beginning, just different locations in many cycles we find ourselves in. Ultimately, I don’t believe it’s something we can really grasp with our brains, however big and intelligent they seem to be, and especially with the moon, that wonderfully mysterious and irrational celestial body, I find it useful not to over-analyze.
What I told several friends who asked me what’s going on and how to respond to this remarkable event, is this:
My theory about lunar events is that I could never explain them anywhere near as good as you can feel them. If what you’re experiencing doesn’t make any sense you’re probably on the right path to the moon.
So happy mooning, everyone. Enjoy those wonderful waves!
